How do I place an order?
While you can email us regarding any order, the most efficient way is to call us directly at the bakery at 704.256.1292. This will assure accuracy, timely response and confirmation of your order.

To assure that we can accommodate your event and time, we request that all orders be placed no less than 2 weeks prior to your event date.
What is required to secure an order?

All remaining balances are to be paid 72 hours prior to the event date and pick-up of an order.
What happens if I don’t pay the balance at the 72 hour mark?
We realize that circumstances can occur, however since we have to start preparing in advance to assure quality, the entire order will be canceled and no refunds will be issued.
